follow your heart

Top : thrifted from paris, High waisted jeans : Newlook, pumps : Primark 

I am so glad you liked my video of me talking about my messy hair, I did ramble on for a little bit didn't I...my hair went a bit crazy after adding the scrunching jel into dry hair...hence my frizzy mess in these photos so thank you for your lovely feed back.
This was a little casual outfit i wore yesterday when I was working from home. Since these photos were taken I have since dyed my hair, nothing to drastic i've just gone a deeper shade of brown. The top that i am wearing was actually thrifted whilst i was in paris with lyzi it was a few euro and i absolutely love it, this outfit is still quite summery for the weather we have had recently. These high waisted jeans are my staple pair of jeans because they make me feel a million dollars perfect for ladies like me with hips galore...haha! This outfit is rather simple but it makes me smile so thats all that really matter isn't it?
In other news this week has been a bit up and down, I really won't bore you with the details and my quote of the week is "as one door closes another one opens." I am feeling rather positive and happy about everything at the moment, its really funny how something rather rubbish can be turned into something positive and amazing. To not be afraid to say yes ok well that didn't work and i deserve to be happy, have the courage to move on and find something worth doing and to be happy about. I am not trying to write in code i promise I just wanted you lovely lot to realise you can do anything you set your heart on no matter how horrible, hard and unforgiving life can be sometimes you really can do what ever you want if you have the courage and drive things will be better surround yourself with people who believe in you, who don't take you for granted, mess with your head, who always have your best interests at heart fill your life with wonderful things...Wow that was deep....I would love to know what you have  over come this week?

  1. I feel the same way about this week. Decisions have to be made and this week I've felt pressured to make the wrong one, but I've gone with my gut and chosen what I feel will be the right one (i really hope so now).
    Those jeans look fab :) straight on the wishlist they go! xxx

  2. Ahh jeez, life is balls sometimes. Just today I have packed up my bags and moved countries from the centre of Barcelona to my mother's bungalow in a small town. I also left my boyfriend of four years without any idea when I will be seeing him again.

    Saying that, I am fairly sure wonderful things are yet to come. I just have to wait it out. There's a reason for everything!

    Glad you've got your head on your shoulders missy. Keep going.

  3. This week I overcame my anxiety of going to hang out with a coworker and his friends, all of whom are all graduates from university and I'm still a wee little second year - so that was a little scary going into but I had the best of times!

    I don't know if that counts. But that felt good to me :)
    It's always nice to hear people being so positive about the things that happen to them, I hope you keep that mindset as you keep going :)

  10. I'm so glad you're feeling better about things. (Is there a way to say "I saw on Twitter that you were down" without sounding super-creepy? :P) Sometimes the biggest obstacles are the ones that make us rise up and become stronger people. This week, I'm working on overcoming my frustration at feeling like my life has come to a screeching halt after college.

  12. I love this post and I love your very first picture too :)
    Last weekend was awful and the last few months have been really bad for me in my personal life which was stressing me out at work. This week I am trying really hard to make a change. Today I've started eating better, yesterday I saw the doctor and last night I slept naturally (woke up twice but y'know!)
    That's my week, glad yours is good too xo
